To the layperson, Shazam and Black Adam aren’t as familiar as Superman or Batman, but to the geek they are huge characters in the DC universe and Dwayne Johnson will be taking on the role of the anti-hero to Shazam, BLACK ADAM! It’s a good decade for the geeks and nerds of the world! So many movies and TV shows! So much new tech! So little intimate contact with the opposite sex! Welcome to the world of nerds and geeks, Mr. Johnson. You are now one of gods nerddren.
